Glen Eira College Parents Association

 

Welcome To The Glen Eira Parents Association

The Glen Eira College Parents Association (GECPA) is an informal and friendly group of parents and guardians who act as a link between our parent community and the college. We typically meet monthly, and the meeting dates are included on the college’s calendar page.

Our main method of communicating with our parent community is through emails. If you are not already receiving our emails, please click here to subscribe to our mailing list, so that we can let you know what is happening and how you can be involved.

All GEC parents and guardians are welcome to attend our meetings – a great chance to meet some school families and help the college. Your level of involvement is up to you, and all contributions are appreciated. We also have a Walk and Talk social group, which meets on Tuesday evenings (weather permitting) at 7:30pm at the corner of Crosbie and Murrumbeena Roads at Duncan Mackinnon Reserve.

Each year, we run a small number of events to support our school community, enable families to meet and socialise together, and raise funds for the college. Generally, these include the following:

  • A second-hand uniform stall before the start of the school year and a few more during the year, depending on how many donations we get
  • Refreshments at intermission of Glen Eira College’s annual production
  • A movie night, typically once every two years
  • A Trivia Night, also usually every second year
  • Sausage and cake stalls during election years

If you are interested in getting involved, in whatever capacity, please contact us at gecpa@gec.vic.edu.au. We would love to have you onboard!
